Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

I thought the Trent Williams pick is a risk worth taking if you're a 4-12 team. I was happy with that choice.

I was a little disappointed we didn't trade into the 2nd or 3rd round, but happy that we didn't force ourselves into either or both of those rounds. We looked for the right opportunity and it doesn't seem like it presented itself.

Riley is solid (I had actually thought we might sneak into the early 3rd for Spikes). I think he can make an instant impact on special teams and some versatility at LB

I don't know much about Morris, but I think it's time we find someone to replace Sellers. Not sure it will be Morris though

Not really a fan of the Austin pick (especially with Snead still on the board! The fact that he wasn't drafted just proves that GTripp is right. All NFL execs and scouts are morons and don't have a clue what they're doing)

I see Erik Cook on the PS this year. Decent pickup. It will be lauded as the new regime drafting an offensive lineman. But I don't see it as much different from Edwin Williams dropping last year and signing with us a UDFA.

Thought Selvish Capers has the potential to be a phenomenal pick. He's a poor man's Trent Williams in the sense that he's very athletic and versatile. But he'll also work hard 100% of the time. Something that's been questioned about TW.

Malcom Kelly says that TW has always been a hard worker. Since we know that it not the case (TW admitted as much in his press conference), that makes me question whether Kelly truly understands the meaning of "hard work." It also makes me question whether Kelly will contribute to the team as much as I had hoped in 2010. I have a nagging feeling that WR will be our greatest need going in to 2011.

Kelly has known TW since High School. I don't think he is going to go in front of the press and say anything but positives and superlatives about him. I doubt it has any bearing on his concept of hard work.

^^ Is Capers our Rod Smith? Any chance he actually out performs Williams?

Tandler's Redskins Draft Six Pack

not a bad read, rich tandler from csn's draft break down

i like his thoughts on ah, especially the last few lines

And it clearly would have been a bad deal to dump Albert Haynesworth for a third-round pick. That would have sent a message that it is possible to pout your way out of the organization. All of the back and forth over the past several weeks will be forgotten when training camp starts in late July. The coaches will find a role that best suits Haynesworth’s talent. That’s their job. And Albert will fulfill that role to the best of his ability. That’s his job.

not unless williams completely craps the bed he has way more raw talent, and physical ability than capers, and that is in no way a knock on capers

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

I gave a grade of "C". I easily could have given a "B" though. I question the WR with a weight of 175 when we need a possession receiver.

I questioned the TE pick. Thought about it and understood they were utilizing him at FB. But I always thought FB's were bigger then TE's? cause they are mostly used for blocking for the RB or at the goal line.

FB's bigger than TE's? Not usually.

Unless you're talking about Sellers, but he's a freak at FB at 270.

Just curious, why are we in need of a possession WR with Thomas and Kelly still on board?

Like I have said in the other threads....

Thomas is starting to look good. He's still not a DeSean Jackson or a R.Moss but he's getting more passes thrown his way. I have not seen anything out of Kelly that screams we are set at WR. I think he only had like a handfull of balls thrown his way and all I can remember is a crappy screen that went for like 1 yrd.

I totally understand the whole Zorn and Hixon issue. I'm hoping Kelly gets coached up big this yr but until we actually see him perform something special I just don't see how anyone can say "whats the problem we have Thomas and Kelly."

On a side note.... my man Mason only had one preseason and everyone wanted him gone. He got cut and brought back and everyone wondered why he was here. That's how I feel about Kelly. Why is he still on the roster?

simple answer there, mason wasn't a second round draft pick he was a udfa, kelly on the other hand wasn't a udfa yet he wasa second round pick

if he doesn't produce this year he will be gone but you can't justify getting rid of a second rounder after one unproductive year and one injury prone year

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

Just saying how about giving Kelly a year under Shanahan to see what he can do. If he proves to be a bum put WR on our needs list for next year.

As far as comparing him to Mason, one guy was an undrafted free agent, the other was a 2nd round pick. You tell me the difference between the two.

I thought Mason was here for three pre-seasons?

Re: Redskins 2010 Draft Class with Analysis

With McNabb on board there will be no more excuses for our WR's. We will soon know who has it and who does not.
My only concern with Kelly and Thomas besides confirming they have the ability and drive to succeed in the NFL, is will their bodies hold up. They both have a history of nagging injuries and missing time during camp. How much of that is chronic injury and how much is lack of fitness and preparation. These guys better bring their A game. Their time to finally show they belong in the NFL is running out.
